Cetirizine is an antihistamine medication used to treat the symptoms of allergies. It can be used to treat dust and pet allergies as well as hay fever. It can also be used to treat certain food allergies and reactions to stings and insect bites.
Cetirizine relieves allergy symptoms such as sneezing, blocked nose and itchy and watery eyes.
You can buy Cetirizine from our UK registered pharmacy in 10mg tablets. Our safe and secure service makes it simple and quick to get the hay fever treatment you need delivered directly to your door.
Hay fever is an allergy caused by pollen. Symptoms include nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, itchy, swollen eyes, and sneezing.
Hay fever occurs when the immune system reacts to a harmless substance present in the air (such as dust or pollen) and begins to produce antibodies. These antibodies release chemicals (histamine) into the bloodstream. Histamine is a naturally occurring chemical within the body which is released in response to an allergic reaction. This leads to the development of hay fever symptoms.
It’s important to treat hay fever as the condition is not only uncomfortable, it can also interfere with your day to day life. Hay fever can often lead to days off work (or school) and may prevent you from enjoying your favourite activities, particularly outdoor activities. Hay fever can also exacerbate the symptoms of asthma and can cause coughing and wheezing in those who are susceptible. Hay fever can also cause sinus congestion and can lead to sinusitis (infection of the sinuses) if left untreated.
During an allergic reaction, the chemical histamine is released which causes the symptoms of hay fever. Cetirizine works by blocking histamine which reduces the symptoms.
Histamines are part of the bodies natural defence system, their purpose is to remove allergens out of the body. Cetirizine blocks the action of histamine (hence being referred to as an antihistamine medication).
The recommended dose of Cetirizine is 10 mg taken once daily. This can be taken with or without food. Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
